Introducing the DSLR Review Matrix
Encouraged by our reader feedback (See poll in the right sidebar/column), we started a new experimental feature, the DSLR Review Matrix. It is so far doing better than we expected, which bodes well for its future! We are talking about the DSLR Reviews Matrix, a one-stop shop for finding the major reviews for each DSLR model and the premium online retailers selling them. We are starting with some of the current models, and will be expanding to more models in the next few days. If you have any feedback, please don't be shy! We want your feedback!
